—Roots have important functions in the ecosystem. Therefore, establishing root-related parameters such as root size, biomass, and 3-D architecture is necessary. Traditional methods for measuring tree roots are labor intensive and destructive to nature , limiting quantitative and repeated assessments in long-term research. Ground-penetrating radar (GPR)(More)
Both oxidative stress and endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER stress) have been linked to pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. Our previous study has shown that L-carnitine may function as an antioxidant to inhibit H2O2-induced oxidative stress in neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells. To further explore the neuroprotection of L-carnitine, here we study the(More)
—Vegetation-index-based spatial sharpening technologies were developed for improving the spatial resolution of thermal-infrared (TIR) images. Previous studies showed that the relationship between vegetation index and surface temperature is independent with spatial resolution. However, spatial extent is another scale factor which may affect the relationship(More)
In recent years, chemical liver injury cases increased significantly in Asian countries, and the imbalance in redox system was believed to be the main cause. Purple sweet potato anthocyanins (PSPA) have been shown to exert antioxidant activity and oxidative-stress-associated functional protein modulation through various signaling pathways, so it is(More)
As a nondestructive geophysical tool, Ground penetrating radar (GPR) has been applied in tree root study in recent years. With increasing amounts of GPR data collected for roots, it is imperative to develop an efficient automatic recognition of roots in GPR images. However, few works have been completed on this topic because of the complexity in root(More)
